Victor Oladipo arrived Madison Square Garden on Halloween in a full Black Panther costume with the national spotlight from ESPN tracking his entrance.
Then for good measure, Vic played the final minutes of the Pacers win over the Knicks like a bona fide super hero, picking the pocket of Tim Hardaway Jr. for a run out dunk then make two monster threes after shooting just 1-7 from behind the arc earlier in the game.
Oh, and he was under the weather, playing with bronchitis. But instead of Wakanda Forever, Oladipo went into Indiana Forever mode to free that W up for grabs in the Garden and pack if away safely for the Pacers to take with them to Chicago.
After backing up the pre-game costume with that win-saving effort, the folks at BreakingT had to pay homage. Thus, the ‘Indiana Forever’ t-shirt for the Pacers Panther.
